Vise Pocket Tool - Black
It's a bottle opener with about nine other tools. At least, thatﾒs one way to look at it! These pocket-sized pliers pack multiple functions into a tiny package that fits on a keychain. The Vise gives you more than plier capabilities thanks to a variety of handy tools.

This tool appears to be very similar to the Bear Grylls Compact Multitool (which has a second knife blade instead of a nail file) and the Mini Suspension, sold at Home Depot for considerably less money.
I got it to pull up puncture vine around the neighborhood, and for that it works well. The thin jaws of the pliers penetrate soil easily, and the teeth on the jaws give a firm grip. However, since the handles are so short and they touch each other close to the joint when closed, it is very easy to pinch either your forefinger or your thumb when you use it. I might try grinding away some of the handle scales with a Dremel tool to see if that helps. Also, it is easy to pinch your hands when closing the thing up, because it snaps closed with a fair amount of force.
The knife is fine, but the other tools are barely better than nothing, which is probably all you can expect at this size.
It's ok, but the keyring is on the wrong side for the direction that the blades open, so it's useless on a keyring, which is what I bought it for.
Bottle opener sucks. the Flathead broke affter about 6 months.
this little multi-tool is the ting that u would want to carry around everyday because it is small, compact and light and it gives you the fine edge and serrated edge options on the multi-tool.i would reccomend the vise for anyone experienced with knives or beginners
Given the fact that this is a compact pocket tool and the affordable price, this multi tool is excellent in my opinion. I use it everyday and is much easier to carry around than the typical sized multi tool
I had an issue with the pliers, but Gerber replaced no questions asked. They followed through on their Lifetime Warranty.
Works well if you can actually get the other tools besides the pliers out. What do you expect from Made in China? The Pliers aren't too precise either. However, I do like the fact that it is spring-loaded. I feel as if this picks up sand in the weirdest places and then gets gunked up into irrelevancy. I do however love the Drop-Point Blade Shape on the Knife.
In concluding, if you really need a mini Multi-Tool, unless you are on a strict price-point or just love Gerber, go with the Leatherman Squirt which is Made in the USA for Double the price.
Used it for a few months and all was good. One day I took it out of my pocket and the flat screw driver wasn't there anymore.
Agree with other reviews. Edges are sharp and can be uncomfortable in the pocket and when trying to cut with the scissors. Broke the flathead screwdriver with minimal torque. Very disappointed and expected more from a Gerber.
Good in concept but the edges are very sharp and hard on the hands. Design of the screw driver is terrible and flimsy, mine broke when trying to loosen a screw. Not what I expected from Gerber. If you looking for a nice pocket tool this size go for the Leatherman Squirt much better design and more robust.
Mine broke about the 5th time I opened it, now the pliers are useless. :(
this is great for in the house or in the car or back pack
